College-wide Cultural Diversity and Inclusion Forum
The College-wide Cultural Diversity and Inclusion forum series is an expansion of the highly successful Western New York student survey project, coined the Buffalo Project, co-facilitated by Dr. Rhianna C. Rogers, associate professor at SUNY Empire State College. The mission of the Buffalo Project is to develop action-based diversity initiatives that focus on utilizing participant observations of culture to inform solution-making efforts in college and community environments. For 10 years, this project has developed programming to build community across the college and beyond, diversity forums is one such programmatic change adopted from the Buffalo Project to support inclusion on campus.
